Jean-Pierre Veillet, owner of Portland based Siteworks, was featured in an article in today's NY Times! Further proof that the NY Times hearts Portland. Siteworks is working with Portland based clothing brand Nau to build a pop-up store, a temporary retail location, in NYC. Unsolicited plug: Urban Works leased Nau their first location in Portland, they were eventually purchased by Horny Toad who we also leased their first retail location in Portland, Lizard Lounge. Siteworks did the design-build work for Lizard Lounge.
Veillet and Nau made headlines for the reclaimed materials he's using to build out the store. Traditionally these pop-up stores have been constructed using new materials that mostly go to waste once the store is de-constructed. Not Nau!
Siteworks has done design and construction work for many clients of Urban Works over the years - we wish him well in his NY adventure!
